Titanic Model, any suggestions?

Postby EvilEmperorZoRG GR » Mon Jan 23, 2012 11:21 pm

I'd like to buy a Titanic model for 30-50$ and I'd like some suggestions!
I don't have a problem if it's plastic but I want it to look at least like this

and not like this

Hello EvilEmperorZoRG GR. I would say buy the biggest scale model that you can afford then presumably it will have more detail. Thanks for the link as it has a Titanic web-site that I had not seen before. I really must get back into my Titanic model it's been over 4 years now since I started it. Ken.

I know nothing of modeling!

I hope I'll be able to make it myself, otherwise I'm gonna give it to someone else to do it!

Hello EvilEmperorZoRG GR. Make the model yourself then that way you will get to learn a bit about the layout of Titanic Ken.

I agree, but still I know nothing about modeling and I'm afraid that I might ruin my model!

Hello EvilEmperorZoRG GR. Assuming you were planning to buy a plastic Titanic model kit. I think most of the normal ones are. The main thing to remember is not to use too much glue. If you dont use enough glue then it wont stick so you get another chance but if you use too much glue then the glue will melt the plastic and before you know it you will have a model of Titanic as it is now.

Haha, good point :D

As I said, I'm gonna make it with some help! But still, I hope it'll be a good model!
What about wood models? Do they cost more than 99$?

So I bought a Rewell plastic model for 29.99 euros!

It's a good start {it's my first model} and I did it in less than 3 hours with only some small parts that remain to be done!

The owner of the shop told me to paint it after creating it!

Hello Stergios. Well done for finishing your model so fast. Great picture. Definately needs to be painted it will look so much better when painted. Will look forward to a picture then. As this is your first model I assume you have not painted any model before. Dont rush the painting. Make sure that each colour is totally dry before starting on the next colour. Good luck. Ken.

Yes I know, I painted the red part so far! I'll be posting it when it's done!
